      The technical description of the Telecommand Station is based on the results of the final subsystem tests. Some outstanding results are illustrated by measured diagrams. The design of some station systems differs from those of the well known DSN stations. Presently, the station is equipped for command purposes only. Nevertheless, the station concept is such that a full-fledged deep space station can be achieved with a few additions, such as receiving and ranging equipment.
